Iran unveils documents on Second World War
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has attended a ceremony unveiling a five-volume book series which includes documents on the occupation of Iran during the Second World War.
"These documents lay bare the face of plunderers," IRNA quoted Ahmadinejad as saying on Wednesday. The Iranian president called on researchers and historians to gather documents dating back to World War I despite all odds.
He highlighted the need for the Foreign Ministry to set up a committee to collect more documents regarding the country's occupation during the WWII.
"We could present one by one of these documents before international courts to lodge a case," he noted. Ahmadinejad pointed out how the colonialist West has altered its disguise at a time when liberation and independence-seeking movements have yielded fruit.
They are those who organized plunders in the world, unprecedented in history, he noted.
"The plunderers have created a global economic establishment to enable them to automatically rob other nations...They have set the dollar as the world's dominant currency and published more than 32 trillion dollars of money without backing in recent years," he went on to say.
The Iranian president called for a change in the financial and monetary systems -- including the World Bank -- which currently dominate the world.
"As long as these structures do not change, [and] the basis of the [UN] Security Council and the world's financial and monetary structure is not disturbed, the plunders will continue," Ahmadinejad warned.
